In Italian scientist Galileo Galilei, using his own telescope, modeled on an invention recently made in the Netherlands, discovered that the Moon, far from being smooth and utterly unlike Earth, had mountains and craters.
He was a mathematician, astronomer, physicist, writer, and philosopher. He had a great contribution in the scientific revolution. His parents were a famous musician, Vincenzo Galilei, and Giulia Ammannati.
He also became a good lutenist as like his father. Inhe got admitted to the famous University of Pisa. But with his talent, soon he became interested in mathematics and physics. After supporting the Aristotelian theory he got a good position in the most powerful scientific authority powered by the Roman Catholic Church.
But for financial problems, he left the university in Galileo Galilei Then he continued to study mathematics. For this book, he became a bit famous and he got a teaching post at the University of Pisa in Then Galileo began to write his study of falling objects which was different from Aristotelian theory.
For that reason, he lost the job at the University of Pisa in In he modified a telescope to observe the sky. Soon he began to support the Copernican theory that the sun is the center and the earth is circling the sun.
Which was completely offensive to Aristotelian and Roman Catholic Church theories. In he wrote a letter to his student describing the similarity between Bible and Copernican theory.
The church captured the letter and made it public. Then the church announced the Copernican theory illegal. Galileo was ordered not to teach of publishing the Copernican theory about the earth.
Galileo stayed silent for 7 years. He was a good friend of Galileo. He encouraged Galileo to continue his study.
But he also told him not to write anything supporting the Copernican theory. This book was actually a discussion between Copernican and Aristotelian theory. Though he said the book was neutral, but the supporter of Aristotelian theory stood against him.
The church captured and tortured him. Then the church punished him for spending his remaining years under house arrest. Though he was not allowed to write or publish any of his work during house arrest.
